Caregiver behaviors and resources influence child height-for-age in rural Chad. (1/65)

The purpose of this study was to identify caregiver characteristics that influence child nutritional status in rural Chad, when controlling for socioeconomic factors. Variables were classified according to the categories of a UNICEF model of care: caregiving behaviors, household food security, food and economic resources and resources for care and health resources. Sixty-four households with 98 children from ages 12 to 71 mo were part of this study. Caregivers were interviewed to collect information on number of pregnancies, child feeding and health practices, influence on decisions regarding child health and feeding, overall satisfaction with life, social support, workload, income, use of income, and household food expenditures and consumption. Household heads were questioned about household food production and other economic resources. Caregiver and household variables were classified as two sets of variables, and separate regression models were run for each of the two sets. Significant predictors of height-for-age were then combined in the same regression model. Caregiver influence on child-feeding decisions, level of satisfaction with life, willingness to seek advice during child illnesses, and the number of individuals available to assist with domestic tasks were the caregiver factors associated with children's height-for-age. Socioeconomic factors associated with children's height-for-age were the amount of harvested cereals, the sources of household income and the household being monogamous. When the caregiver and household socioeconomic factors were combined in the same model, they explained 54% of the variance in children's height-for-age, and their regression coefficients did not change or only slightly increased, except for caregiver's propensity to seek advice during child illnesses, which was no longer significant. These results indicate that caregiver characteristics influence children's nutritional status, even while controlling for the socioeconomic status of the household.  (+info)

First nationwide survey of the health of schoolchildren in Chad. (2/65)

Survey data are presented from a nationwide survey of the health of schoolchildren in Chad. The country was stratified into distinct ecological zones based on satellite sensor environmental data. Twenty schools were visited and 1024 children aged between 6 and 15 years were included in the study. The overall prevalence of stunting, underweight, anaemia and goitre was 18.7, 16.5, 25.1 and 23.3%, respectively. Schistosoma haematobium, Schistosoma mansoni and hookworm were the only helminth species found with prevalences of 13.2, 1 and 32.7%, respectively. A greater proportion of boys were stunted, underweight, anaemic and infected with S. haematobium and hookworm than girls. Older children were more stunted, underweight and infected with S. haematobium and hookworm than younger children, but less anaemic. The prevalence of infection showed marked geographical heterogeneity, with hookworm prevalence being highest in the Sudanian and tropical zone, and S. haematobium being most prevalent in the Sahelian zone and the Logone and Chari basins in the west of the country. These data show that there is a high prevalence of helminth infection in Chad, but that treatment for S. haematobium and hookworm should be targeted to different geographical areas.  (+info)

Tolerability of doxycycline monohydrate salt vs. chloroquine-proguanil in malaria chemoprophylaxis. (3/65)

The resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to the chloroquine-proguanil association (C/P) as antimalarial chemoprophylaxis is becoming increasingly common in Africa. Daily oral doxycycline hyclate 100 mg is effective as malaria prophylaxis. But the hyclate salt's adverse effects combined with the capsule's galenic form are incompatible with good chemoprophylaxis compliance. We conducted a randomized group study of 522 French soldiers deployed in Gabon and Chad for 4 months to determine the tolerability of short-term malaria chemoprophylaxis with a 100-mg daily tablet of a monohydrate doxycycline salt compared with a daily C/P capsule. At days 7 and 120, compliance was better in the doxycycline group [respectively 98.5%vs. 73.9% (P < 0.001) and 90.5%vs. 74% (P < 0.001)]. No major event (evacuation, hospitalization) was related to the medications. Epigastralgia, diarrhoea, urticaria, mouth ulcers, sun sensitization and desquamation were significantly more frequent in the C/P group (P < 0.05). There was no statistical difference for malaria incidence, vertigo, nausea and hair loss. These results suggest that doxycycline monohydrate may be safely used in short-term malaria chemoprophylaxis. With the same efficacy as a hyclate doxycycline, doxycycline monohydrate could be a good chemoprophylaxis for short-term travellers at particular risk of C/P resistant P. falciparum malaria.  (+info)

Use of remote sensing and a geographical information system in a national helminth control programme in Chad. (4/65)

OBJECTIVE: To design and implement a rapid and valid epidemiological assessment of helminths among schoolchildren in Chad using ecological zones defined by remote sensing satellite sensor data and to investigate the environmental limits of helminth distribution. METHODS: Remote sensing proxy environmental data were used to define seven ecological zones in Chad. These were combined with population data in a geographical information system (GIS) in order to define a sampling protocol. On this basis, 20 schools were surveyed. Multilevel analysis, by means of generalized estimating equations to account for clustering at the school level, was used to investigate the relationship between infection patterns and key environmental variables. FINDINGS: In a sample of 1023 schoolchildren, 22.5% were infected with Schistosoma haematobium and 32.7% with hookworm. None were infected with Ascaris lumbricoides or Trichuris trichiura. The prevalence of S. haematobium and hookworm showed marked geographical heterogeneity and the observed patterns showed a close association with the defined ecological zones and significant relationships with environmental variables. These results contribute towards defining the thermal limits of geohelminth species. Predictions of infection prevalence were made for each school surveyed with the aid of models previously developed for Cameroon. These models correctly predicted that A. lumbricoides and T. trichiura would not occur in Chad but the predictions for S. haematobium were less reliable at the school level. CONCLUSION: GIS and remote sensing can play an important part in the rapid planning of helminth control programmes where little information on disease burden is available. Remote sensing prediction models can indicate patterns of geohelminth infection but can only identify potential areas of high risk for S. haematobium.  (+info)

Light and electronic observations on Henneguya ghaffari (Myxosporea, Bivalvulida) infecting the gills and intestine of Nile perch Lates niloticus (Pisces: Teleostei) from Chad and Senegal. (5/65)

Henneguya ghaffari Ali, 1999, described for the first time in Egypt, has been found on gills and intestine of Nile perch Lates niloticus L. from Chad and Senegal (Africa). It formed plasmodia which induced lesions of infected tissues. In fresh state, the spore body was ovoid and its size was 11.07 +/- 0.7 (range 11 to 13) x 7.7 +/- 0.4 (range 7 to 8) microm. The length of the caudal appendages was 44.2 +/- 1.7 (42 to 48) microm. The polar capsules were pyriform, of equal size, with the polar filament showing 4 coils, and measuring 3.17 +/- 0.1 (range 3 to 4) x 2.2 +/- 0.1 (range 1 to 2) microm. The total length of the spore was 55.73 +/- 1.7 (range 53 to 61) microm. At ultrastructural level, our results confirm that in Henneguya species, the sporoplasm is binucleate and the pansporaoblast is disporous.  (+info)

Health and equity impacts of a large oil project in Africa. (6/65)

A system of external reviewers was established by the World Bank Group to promote a thorough environmental and health impact assessment for the 3.5 billion US dollars Chad Oil Export Project, based on a loan request from Chad, Cameroon and a consortium of oil companies. The environmental and health assessment process showed evidence of its ability to minimize the number of deaths from malaria, traffic accidents and construction accidents and the occurrence of minor sexually transmitted diseases, diarrhoeal diseases and respiratory diseases; it also probably limited adverse impacts on wildlife and tropical ecology along the pipeline route. However, the system was unable to deal with the larger issues, which included: the intrinsic unsustainability of this kind of extraction project; its eventual contribution to large amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere; the lack of equity in sharing the risks, negative impacts, benefits and decision-making among the various participants in the project; and the possible acceleration of transmission of the AIDS virus into central Africa. Unfortunately, the international panel of experts appointed by the World Bank Group was largely ignored by the project proponents, and had little success in minimizing the most serious impacts or in improving the social equity of the project.  (+info)

Possible illnesses: assessing the health impacts of the Chad Pipeline Project. (7/65)

Health impact assessments associated with large-scale infrastructure projects, such as the Chad-Cameroon Petroleum Development and Pipeline Project, monitor pre-existing conditions and new diseases associated with particular industries or changes in social organization. This paper suggests that illness self-reports constitute a complementary set of benchmarks to measure the health impacts of these projects, and presents data gathered in ongoing household and health service surveys in Ngalaba, a village near a major oilfield in Chad. In an initial 16-week period of weekly data collection, 363 people reported few of the clinically chronic or asymptomatic conditions expected according to health transition theory, and the overall level of illness reporting was low. Illnesses often were described by symptoms or lay diagnoses. Health care practitioners were consulted rarely; when they were, resources for diagnosis and treatment were limited. Clinically acute, short-duration illnesses (e.g. parasitic infections, toothaches, or hernias) were experienced as chronic conditions and were reported week after week. The low levels of illness reporting and lack of clinically chronic conditions are not taken to mean that rural Chadians are healthy. Rather, the patterns of morbidity reflect a particular local ecology in which health services are organized and care dispensed in ways that limit the possibilities for illness in terms of types of illnesses that can be diagnosed and reported, forms illnesses take, and ways in which illnesses are experienced. Illness self-reports are useful adjuncts to "harder" biological measures in HIAs, particularly in the context of large-scale infrastructure projects with explicit development goals. Rather than providing data on the extent to which harm has been mitigated by corporate, state, and donor activities, self-reports show the possibilities of illness in local contexts.  (+info)

Community level risk factors for numbers of landmine victims in Chad and Thailand. (8/65)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine commonalities of landmine victim risk factors in two very different countries. DESIGN AND SETTING: Data on 249 communities in Chad and 530 in Thailand were collected during 2000-2001 as part of the Global Landmine Survey. Community level variables were analysed in a series of Poisson mixture models with number of landmine victims as the dependent variable. Models developed for each country were tested on the other to investigate similarities and robustness of identification of risk factors. MAIN RESULTS: Increased community level risk was associated with population size, closeness to another community with victims, emplacement in the previous two years, blocked water or pasture, and the proximity of unexploded ordnance or anti-tank mines. In Chad, risk factors tended to be more related to identifying communities that had crossed a threshold between near zero and moderate risk; Thailand, factors were more related to increases in victim rates. CONCLUSIONS: Current systems of collecting data on community characteristics and landmine victims can provide meaningful risk factor information. Remediation approaches that focus on blockage of important resources and areas of recent, high intensity conflicts may be the most beneficial in reducing the numbers of victims.  (+info)

Dakar/Accra, 23 June 2016 - Massive population displacements and insecurity in the Lake Chad basin are putting livelihoods and food security at high risk. In northeast Nigeria alone, the impact of the conflict on agriculture is estimated at USD 3.7 billion due to livestock losses and reduced agricultural production, destruction of irrigation and farming facilities, and collapse of extension services including veterinary health facilities.. In the affected areas, civilians bear the burden of insecurity. Displaced people lost their assets and most of them rely on the limited resources of host communities, who themselves have suffered from the disruption of agricultural activities and of transhumance flows over the past few years. Staple food prices have also increased, with rises up to 50 to 100 percent reported in some areas of Borno State.. As of June 2016, 4.6 million people are severely food insecure in the Lake Chad basin, of which 65 percent are located in Northeast Nigeria, especially in ...
This study was carried out to identify and assess the water quality of the Chari River. The Chari, 1200 km long, is Chads major water source. Municipal sewage, industrial wastewater discharge, and seasonal run-off from agriculture are regularly fed into the river. Several trace metals such as Cu, Zn, Fe, Ni, Cr, Mn, and Cd, were measured in different sampling stations located along the Chari River at NDjamena in different campaigns from 2008 to 2010. Overall, manganese, zinc, chromium, and copper concentration levels were mainly in the range of the permissible limits prescribed by WHO guidelines (WHO 2011). Nickel, iron, and cadmium concentrations were still high. This preliminary study allowed us to identify the magnitude of toxic pollutants, which are responsible for Chari River water contamination in the study area. This study revealed that urgent measures must be taken to protect the local people from health problems resulting from high concentrations of heavy metals.

The music group Chari Jazz formed in 1964 and initiated Chads modern music scene. Later, more renowned groups such as African Melody and International Challal attempted to mix modernity and tradition. Popular groups such as Tibesti have clung faster to their heritage by drawing on sai, a traditional style of music from southern Chad. The people of Chad have customarily disdained modern music. However, in 1995 greater interest has developed and fostered the distribution of CDs and audio cassettes featuring Chadian artists. Piracy and a lack of legal protections for artists rights remain problems to further development of the Chadian music industry.[79][80]. Millet is the staple food throughout Chad. It is used to make balls of paste that are dipped in sauces. In the north this dish is known as alysh; in the south, as biya.

Cholera has killed at least 1,200 people in the countries surrounding Lake Chad this year, including Niger, Cameroon, Chad and Nigeria.
The CHADS2 score was 0 in 45.4% of patients, 1-2 in 42%, and 3-6 in 12.6%. During a median follow-up of 60 months, 51% of patients had a recurrence of an atrial tachyarrhythmia (AT). The recurrence rate at 1 year was 34%. The independent predictors of recurrent AT were left atrial diameter (hazard ratio [HR], 1.04 per millimeter) and CHADS2 score (HR, 1.3). The CHADS2 score was predictive of recurrent AT >2 years post-ablation. Only 1% of patients with a CHADS2 score of 0 had recurrent AT >2 years post-ablation. In patients with a CHADS2 score of 3-6 who were free of AT during the first 2 years of follow-up, 64% subsequently had recurrent AT.. ...
Chad is of primordial importance in Nigerias foreign policy consideration for many reasons. In this way, Nigeria has been put in a position where she had to monitor and react to the day-to-day situational fact of the Chadian crisis.

Assistance to Sudanese refugees in Chad. Continued fighting between Sudanese government forces and two rebel movements seeking autonomy for Darfur, keeps pushing more people over the border. UNHCR reported about 18,000 arrived last week, after Sudanese government forces, backed by Arab tribal militiamen on horseback, raided and burned 10 villages. The newly arrived refugees in Chad are being registered by UNHCR. Since Sunday, around 2,000 people have been registered in the villages of Kourbileke, Ogona and Kabrara. A new refugee site was identified by the Government in Yaroungou, to relocate 15,000 refugees from Maro and Danamadji. Médecins sans Frontières reported an average acute malnutrition rate among the children of refugees and of local population in Tine of 15%.

In the present study, we addressed the principal issues raised over 5 years of routine usage of the Auto40 flow cytometers which had been implemented in 8 HIV monitoring laboratories throughout Chad. The installation and extended usage of a significant number of Auto40 flow cytometers in Chad also allowed us to assess the performance of these CD4 T cells counters in situations of actual use, across an entire country with harsh climatic conditions and a large geographical territory. This field approach is original, and complements the previous strictly biological evaluations of the analyzers in reference laboratories in Senegal [11], Cameroon [21, 22], as well as recently in Chad [23].. The analyzers were able to function properly regardless of the level of the laboratory, including in level-3 laboratories in health centers. They were even able to function properly in rooms partially exposed to the outside environment, which were not air conditioned, which had widespread dust, and in settings ...
Background: The CHADS(2) score (C, congestive heart failure [CHF]; H, hypertension [HT]; A, age ,= 75 y; D, diabetes mellitus; S-2, prior stroke or transient ischemic attack) is used to assess the risk of ischemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, its role in patients without documented AF is not well explored. Hypothesis: The goal of the current study was to explore if the incidence of hospitalization with first-ever AF after stroke increased with increasing CHADS(2) score. Methods: We identified 57 636 patients with nonfatal stroke and no documented AF in the Swedish Stroke Register (Riks-Stroke) during 2001-2004 and followed them for a mean of 2.2 years through record linkage to the Inpatient and Cause of Death registers. Cox regression hazard models were used to estimate the relative risk (RR) of new AF following stroke and its association with different CHADS(2) scores. Results: Overall, 2769 patients were hospitalized with new AF (4.8%, 21.7 per 1000 person-years). ...

Une exploration des données collectées a permis de retenir huit dimensions représentées par douze indicateurs pour conduire une analyse de la pauvreté utilisant les mesures de Alkire et Foster (2009). Létude a montré que la contribution des privations sur les dimensions manquantes à la pauvreté est très importante : la précarité dans lemploi contribue à elle seule au 1/5 de la
Whitney is listening to music in the kitchen when Simone walks in. Simone asks if that is the song that Chad always plays. Whitney remarked that she wouldnt know. Simone says that she always thinks of Chad when she hears that song. Whitney said that she better not let their Mom hear her talking like that since she doesnt want them hanging around Chad. Simone says that she will just have to accidentally run into Chad from now on.Eve walks into the kitchen as Simone is saying this. Eve tells her that she had better not, she told them to stay away from Chad and she meant it. Simone wants to know why Eve gets upset when she hears Chads name. Eve tells her that she is just trying to protect her from a boy who could bring her a great deal of harm.Simone says that she only wants to be his friend, but Eve thinks that she wants a little bit more than that. Simone tries to get TC to talk to Eve about Chad, but TC agrees with Eve. He then tells the girls to get their things so that they could go to the ...
In the present investigation we show that CHAD, a relatively abundant noncollagenous protein in cartilage extracellular matrix, interacts with β1 integrins on bovine chondrocytes. This interesting finding identifies CHAD as a candidate for mediating signals between the chondrocytes and the cartilage matrix.. CHAD is a member of the LRR protein family (35). Among other members in this family are the small cartilage proteoglycans biglycan, decorin, fibromodulin, and lumican. These proteoglycans are all known to interact with collagen (18, 41, 47), but it is not known if CHAD interacts with collagen or other matrix molecules.. Chondrocyte adhesion to CHAD was partially inhibited by a rat polyclonal antibody against β1 integrin. Species differences between cells and antibodies may explain why the inhibition was not total. Alternatively, other receptors than β1 integrins may also be involved in the adhesion to CHAD. We found that adhesion of chondrocytes to CHAD was dependent on Mg2+ or Mn2+ but ...

The Chadian phosphorus-manganese deposit occurs in the late Sinian Doushantuo Formation. The orebearing sequence consists of black phyllite, a phosphorite ore sequence, a manganese ore sequence, and dolostone. Phosphorite ores are divided into four types: psammitic, pelletal, micritic, and fine- grained crystalline phosphorites. The manganese ores, immediately overlying the phosphorite ores, consist of manganese carbonate (rhodochrosite) and P- bearing manganese oxide, both having pelletal and oolitic structures.Chemical analyses show that phosphorite ores contain from 7.6 to 14.1 percent P, 0.3 to 6.7 percent Mn, and 0.6 to 0.9 percent organic carbon; manganese ores contain 11.3 to 24.2 percent Mn, 0.1 to 5.7 percent P, and about 0.4 percent organic carbon.The occurrence and composition of the ore-bearing sequence indicate that phosphorite and manganese carbonate formed in a transition zone between reducing (euxinic) and slightly oxidizing depositional environments. Deposition in relatively ...
20 January 2005. From 6-18 January 2005, 8 cases of meningococcal disease have been reported from Brejing, Treijing and Farchana refugee camps in northern Chad (see previous report).. Four cases have tested positive for Neisseria meningitidis W135 by latex test. The WHO Collaborating Centre, Institut de Médecine Tropicale du Service de Santé des Armées (IMTSSA) has confirmed the W135 serogroup by culture.. The International Coordinating Group (ICG) on Vaccine Provision for Epidemic Meningitis Control has provided 178,000 doses of trivalent vaccine for a mass vaccination campaign. WHO, UNHCR, UNICEF, Médecins sans Frontières-Holland and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) are working with the Ministry of Health, Chad to implement other emergency control measures, including case management and surveillance in other camps and neighbouring districts.. ...

The Bear Raid, already in search of a quarterback for 2017, now must find a No. 1 receiver.. Chad Hansen, Cals top wideout this season, announced Wednesday that he is headed to the NFL.. Projected to be a middle-round pick in the upcoming draft, Hansen ranks third in the country in receptions at 9.2 per game and was fourth in receiving yards (124.9 per game).. "After serious consideration and countless discussions with my family, teammates and coaches, I have decided to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft," Hansen said in a statement. "Competing in the NFL has always been among my highest goals and I believe the time to pursue this opportunity is now.". Hansen was selected first-team all-Pac-12 by the Associated Press and ESPN.com. The Pac-12 coaches placed Hansen on the second team. He caught 92 passes for 1,249 yards and 11 touchdowns.. "Chad played a significant role in our offensive success last season and was certainly one of the top receivers in the nation," head coach Sonny Dykes said. "He ...
Chad Ricklefs has been competing in ultramarathons at a national level since 1998 and reached an all-time high in his career in 2007, placing 17th overall at the 2007 IAU 100 km World Cup. Chads time of 7:01 was a personal best and helped the U.S. team capture the bronze medal behind Japan and Russia respectively. He is a former National 100 km Road Champion, winning the 2002 USA Championships in 2002.

Theres a lot more to Chad Latta than meets the eye. With scars the length of his abdomen, a Mohawk, and tattoos covering much of his body, no one would guess this former Marine is a therapist and university psychology teacher. Hes also a cancer survivor-but thats far from the biggest event of his life.. "Cancer really hasnt changed my life mentally," he says. "If I was to write my autobiography, it would only be a chapter.". ARTS, SPORTS, AND A WICKED SENSE OF HUMOR. Chad grew up in Denver, the son of an oral surgeon and an opera singer. His childhood was full of music, specifically classical, as he accompanied his mom to rehearsals and performances. He enjoys singing a cappella, and also grew up to be a talented painter and artist.. Throughout his life, hes developed his wicked sense of humor as the biggest weapon in his arsenal of defense. Small in stature, he was bullied as a child. "I kept people busy laughing so theyd have less time to pick on me," he says.. Sports have always played ...
His name was Chad Hanks and he was a very good friend of mine.. Normally Im also pretty indifferent to death. Ive always been of the belief, a belief he and I shared, that were all pretty insignificant and theres really nothing waiting for us at the end, that it is up to us to make our own meaning while we are alive.. Chads passing is different. I have not had to cope with the loss of a close friend since my time in the military, and it was under very different circumstances. With this, Im having a hard time putting into words how much this man meant to me.. When youre a musician, you dont see many of your closest friends very often. One of the things you sign up for right at the beginning, is the understanding that youre going to be isolated from those you care about. In the last years of his life, we didnt speak very often. Not because wed fallen out of touch, but because we were both busy. While we didnt speak as often as we once did (or should have), we were both of the mindset ...
The CHADS2 score and its updated version, the CHA2DS2-VASc score, are clinical prediction rules for estimating the risk of stroke in patients with non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation (AF), a common and serious heart arrhythmia associated with thromboembolic stroke. Such a score is used to determine whether or not treatment is required with anticoagulation therapy or antiplatelet therapy, since AF can cause stasis of blood in the upper heart chambers, leading to the formation of a mural thrombus that can dislodge into the blood flow, reach the brain, cut off supply to the brain, and cause a stroke. A high score corresponds to a greater risk of stroke, while a low score corresponds to a lower risk of stroke. The CHADS2 score is simple and has been validated by many studies. In clinical use, the CHADS2 score (pronounced "chads two") has been superseded by the CHA2DS2-VASc score ("chads vasc" ), which gives a better stratification of low-risk patients. The CHADS2 score does not include some common ...

Prof Laurent Fauchier (France) presented a case with respect to management of a patient at low risk - warfarin or aspirin? Whilst old guidelines recommend aspirin or warfarin for those at intermediate risk, more data show that even patients with a CHADS2 score=1, oral anticoagulation is more beneficial than aspirin. The new ESC guidelines recognise the limitations of the CHADS2 score. If the CHADS2 score is ≥2, the patient is high enough risk to treat with oral anticoagulation. In the patients with a CHADS2 score of 0 or 1, or where a more comprehensive stroke risk assessment is needed, additional stroke risk modifiers should be considered - this is encompassed within the CHA2DS2-VASc score [Lip et al Chest 2010] that complements the CHADS2 score with vascular disease, age 65-74 and female gender, and extra weight given to age ≥75 as a risk factor ...
Were sick. All four of us. It started last Friday night, when Bree started running a temperature. I finally took her to an urgent care when her temp neared 104, and she was given antibiotics for an ear infection. When I got home at 11pm, Chad said that he wasnt feeling too good, which I mostly disregarded, not having the energy to care at the time. So Sunday Mason and I went to church, while Chad stayed home with Bree--both of whom were feverish by this time. When I got home, Brees fever had finally lessened, but Chads temp had him feeling like he was "dying." So I cancelled my Relief Society presidency meeting, scolded Chad for waiting so long to take something for his fever, went to pick up Brees medicine at the pharmacy, and came home feeling stressed. Well, Monday Chad took Mason to his well-baby check-up, and had the doctor look in his throat. He came home to tell me its probably Mono. We still dont know for sure, but we know its not a bacterial infection, and his symptoms are ...
Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs. The Hype Bros. Chuck: The Hype Bros dont have much hype these days. This could be the match that drives the nail in their coffin and sets up a feud between Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley. Or do they both turn heel? Either way, change is coming and that doesnt bode well for their chances. Plus, Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin should be next in line for a tag title shot. Pick: Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin. Scott: We havent seen much of Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin the last few weeks on SmackDown Live. However, given the problems WWE has been teasing with Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley, Ill go with American Alpha/Worlds Greatest Tag Team hybrid. They teased something different for the Hype Bros, but havent followed through just yet. So, we could easily see a development with that as well. Pick: Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin. Aaron: This match is interesting not because of the result, which you have to think is etched in stone, but what the result will do to the ...
Traditional pastoralists survive in but few places in the world. They can still be encountered in the African Sahel, where annual alternations of dry and wet seasons force them to continual mobility. Little is known about the genetic structure of these populations. We present here the population distribution of 312 HVS-I mtDNA and 364 Y-STR haplotypes in both farmer and pastoralist groups from the Lake Chad Basin and the West African Sahel. We show that the majority of pastoral populations (represented in the African Sahel by the Fulani nomads) fail to show significant departure from neutrality for mtDNA as evidenced by Fus Fs statistics, and exhibit lower levels of intra-population diversity measures for mtDNA when contrasted with farmers. These differences were not observed for the Y chromosome. Furthermore, AMOVA analyses and population distributions of the mtDNA haplotypes show more heterogeneity in the sedentary groups than in the pastoralists. On the other hand, pastoralists retain a ...
Transparency of the Regulatory System Chad is currently implementing effective laws to foster competition and establish clear rules based on Uniform Acts produced by the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa (OHADA, Organisation pour lHarmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires, www.ohada.com). However, in the current climate, certain Chadian and foreign companies in some sectors may encounter situations in which competition with other well-established companies is difficult. Regulations and financial policies generally do not impede competition in the financial sector. Legal, regulatory, and accounting systems pertaining to banking are transparent and consistent with international norms. Chad began using OHADAs accounting system in 2002, bringing its national standards into harmony with accounting systems throughout the region. Several international accounting firms have offices in Chad. However, while accounting, legal, and regulatory procedures are consistent with ...

He said different mechanisms have been put in place to care for the displaced persons, in areas of nutrition, health, physical and spiritual rehabilitation, among others.. "About 150,000 refugees have also come back home from across the borders. Our sleeves are rolled up to face the challenges head-on, along with our strategic partners," the President said.. According to him, Nigeria is appreciating the continued collaboration of the UN.. Mr. Grandi, who had visited Cameroun, Niger, and Chad, as part of his tour of the Lake Chad Basin region, commended what he called "Nigerias determination to resolve the humanitarian crisis.". He said his visit to Maiduguri, in Borno State, afforded him the opportunity "to see the excellent work being done by the authorities, with support of the international community.". The UN High Commissioner for Refugees said he was leaving Nigeria with the conviction that things were under control. ...
In the context of the Sahel crisis, the maps are able to provide not just a country overview, but a look at the entire region, showing all land transport corridors, ports, warehouses, etc - essential for planning a multi-country logistics response. With this data, logisticians can put together analyses to guide their operational plans, considering the main factors of time needed and tonnage to be delivered. A few examples include assessments on using certain transport corridors over others, factoring in estimated lead times, etc., as well as evaluating which ports to use at which time, thanks to available information on the most recent trends in their discharge and handling capacities.. Nuru Jumaine, a Logistics Officer based in NDjamena, Chad has had first-hand experience in using the maps, and finds a few particular features of the maps especially helpful.. "The lead-time module is quite interesting," says Nuru. "This dynamic and automated analysis allows us to more accurately forecast the ...
One of the first countries to introduce the new meningitis A vaccine (MenAfriVac), Chad ran an immunisation campaign with GAVI support in December 2011 to help eliminate the regions devastating epidemics.
Implementation of case-based surveillance for meningitis is feasible in Chad, but has required political and technical engagement. Given the high proportion of S. pneumoniae and its poor detection by Pastorex, continued use of PCR is warranted for surveillance outside of outbreaks, and efforts to accelerate the introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines are needed. Introduction of MenAfriVac in routine immunisation and future availability of a pentavalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine will be key elements for the sustained reduction in meningitis outbreaks in the area ...

Background: Nearly 3 million people worldwide are coinfected with HIV and HCV. Affordable strategies for prevention are needed. We developed a novel vaccination regimen involving replication-defective and serologically distinct chimpanzee adenovirus (ChAd3, ChAd63) vector priming followed by modified vaccinia Ankara (MVA) boosts, for simultaneous delivery of HCV non-structural (NSmut) and HIV-1 conserved (HIVconsv) region immunogens. Methods: We conducted a phase I trial in which 33 healthy volunteers were sequentially enrolled and vaccinated via the intramuscular route as follows: 9 received ChAd3-NSmut [2.5 × 1010 vp] and MVA-NSmut [2 × 108 pfu] at weeks 0 and 8, respectively; 8 received ChAdV63.HIVconsv [5 × 1010 vp] and MVA.HIVconsv [2 × 108 pfu] at the same interval; 16 were co-primed with ChAd3-NSmut [2.5 × 1010 vp] and ChAdV63.HIVconsv [5 × 1010 vp] followed at week 8 by MVA-NSmut and MVA.HIVconsv [both 1 × 108 pfu]. Immunogenicity was assessed using peptide pools in ex vivo ELISpot and
We paid for Sherrys pre-natal care, living expenses while she was pregnant and a settlement of $20,000 to carry my husbands biological child since I was unable to do so, through in vitro fertilization of Sherrys egg," Molly told her therapist. "Everything was completely legal and above-board. When Chad was born, we brought him home with us three days later. We were so grateful to Sherry for creating this miracle for us, and she seemed very happy for us, too. Per the terms of our contract with Sherry, her parental rights were terminated and I legally adopted Chad and we had no further contact with her. When Chad turned five, Sherry contacted us through an attorney and demanded full custody of Chad since she was his biological birth mother. Sherry wanted "her" child back. She had not seen him since he was born, but as his true mother, she sued for custody saying that she was coerced into giving up her parental rights. What nonsense! We had a deal, we had a contract, and then she decided that ...

Chad and Danielle, Florida: Vaccine-related injuries are reported to be rare. Some people compare the risk of vaccine-injury to the risk of being struck by lightening. Tell that to this family, after you read their story. Like most people, they never thought of the possibility when they consented to the latest miracle vaccine.In December 2009, Danielle, at the age of 14, had her first Gardasil injection.. When the time came around for her second injection, her parents had decided that Gardasil might be a good idea for their son, too. Less than 3 weeks after that, their nightmare began.. This is their story, as written by their mother. No one could tell it better that she did:. On 22 December 2009, under the advice of my childrens pediatrician, I had my daughter, Danielle vaccinated with the Gardasil vaccine. The doctor gave me an information sheet showing what the side effects were: swelling at injection site, low grade fever, etc. Nothing noted was unusual or dangerous. I didnt question the ...

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies signed Chad Billingsley to a one-year contract in January because they considered it low risk, high reward. It was low risk because if Billingsley, who left Saturday nights 3-1 victory over the Marlins at Citizens Bank Park with elbow tightness after five scoreless innings, could not pitch effectively following a pair of right elbow surgeries, they had committed only $1.5 million. That is a pittance compared to the $37.5 million injured left-hander Cliff Lee will make this year, which includes his $25 million salary and a $12.5 million buyout on a 2016 club option.

Objectives: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased risk of thromboembolism events (TE). However, limited data are available on the predictors of TE in patients with AF undergoing percutaneous coronary artery stenting. So we evaluate whether CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores are adequate for TE risk stratification in patients with AF after stent implantation.. Methods: We reviewed consecutive 634 patients with AF treated with at least one stent implanted between January 2007 and July 2011, who were taking dual antiplatelet therapy (without warfarin) at discharge. The main outcome endpoint was occurrence of TE (ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, peripheral embolism, or pulmonary embolisms) during follow-up.. Results: Complete follow-up was achieved in 89.4% of the cohort. During a follow-up of 35.64±16.65months, 52 patients (2.6 per 100 person-years) experienced TE. CHA2DS2-VASc score was significant predictor of TE in multivariate models (HR 1.247, 95%CI 1.059-1.468, ...

Nobody cared about their old heads, because the new ones work just fine now, dont they?…. they have the same size mouth and eyes.. The song "Old Heads" is a sci-fi space anthem to technology that constantly replaces itself, proving both necessary and unnecessary at the same time. Its also a jangly pop gem, a trip through the fantastical that is ultimately warm and relatable. This remarkable coexistence is one of many achievements of Chad VanGaalens Light Information, his sixth record on Sub Pop, due September 8th.. For an album thats about "not feeling comfortable with really anything," as VanGaalen says, Light Information is nonetheless a vivid, welcoming journey through future worlds and relentless memories.

They can eat me from the inside out, I already hear them chewing.") could only come from the mind of a creative polymath-an accomplished visual artist, animator, director, and ...
Chad said he made almost $2,600 per day working as the captain of a 35-foot boat in Bay Jimmy, a job that he says cost him his eyesight..

Without his wife around, he cant even jot down a phone number. …. Chads vulnerability was tangible, realized each day when the infested water would splash onto his flesh, onto his cheek where a half-faced respirator should have rested. Never mind the airborne contaminants, the intangible threat all coastal residents face. This was "continuous, forever" oil-on-face, Chad says.. "When we came in with the boats, we were orange," he said. "We were orange. Literally, orange and it didnt wash off because this stuff was going in our pores, our eyes, ears, mouth….

Question: Chad, is it possible to replace traditional barbell and dumbbell lifts with exercises using nothing but rings and parallettes? How does that fit into a full-body workout? Thanks, JB. CW Answer: Yes JB, its not only possible, its ideal. Even though exercises with rings and parallettes dont require external loading, you can build just as much strength and muscle as you can with iron, no matter how heavy that iron is. In fact, if you know which exercises to do, you can break through hypertrophy plateaus and achieve newfound muscularity with exercises on the rings and parallettes.. You only need to look at the muscular development of the Olympic gymnasts who specialize in the rings events to know how powerful those exercises are for muscle growth. Every single guy has an upper body that most of us would commit a felony to possess.. A typical retort I hear when I mention the muscularity of the rings gymnasts is something like this: "Yeah, but theyve been doing those exercises for 10 ...

This study found that the ATRIA risk score performed better than the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc risk scores with a higher C statistic and positive NRI. This pattern persisted in sensitivity analyses where we restricted the analysis to the more recent half of the cohorts follow-up period, when we excluded "unspecified" strokes as outcome events and when we excluded renal dysfunction as a predictor. The improvement in risk classification resulted mainly from downward reclassification. Patients with a CHA2DS2-VASc risk score of 1 seem to have an absolute risk of ,1%. As a consequence, applying the CHA2DS2-VASc risk score in a community-based population, such as the CPRD, might lead to overtreatment of very low stroke risk patients.. The C statistics of all risk scores showed moderate discriminative ability. However, the C statistic has proved to be inelastic and shows little improvement when important risk factors are added to the prediction model. Examples of this (change of 0.01 to 0.02 in C ...
... of Defiance County, Ohio, is charged with filling out 124 fictitious voter registration forms, some using the names of celebrities and fictitious characters, including Michael Jackson (the pop singer), Jeffrey Dahmer (the famous serial killer), and Disney character Mary Poppins. Staton was hired by Toledo resident Georgianne Pitts to collect legitimate voter registration forms from unregistered voters. Instead, he filled the forms out himself, according to Sheriff David Westrick. Deputies also allege that Staton was paid in crack cocaine instead of in cash, after a search of his house turned up drug paraphernalia and blank voter registration forms; Westrick says Pitts admitted paying Staton in crack cocaine. Staton is charged with a felony, false registration. Pitts says she was recruited by Thaddeus Jackson, the assistant Ohio director of the NAACP National Voter Fund (NVF).

It was difficult. There were some fast cars coming. The 24 car jumped out in front of us on the restart. Quite honestly, if the next caution hadnt of come out, they definitely would have won the race.. Jimmie got a really good restart on the last restart. I dont know exactly what happened between Brad and Jeff. Obviously those guys got tangled up and there was some chaos there. But we were able to scoot away, get going.. Then on the next one, Jimmie did a great job on that restart. Got out there, was able to check out a little bit. I think there was more beating and banging behind us. We were kind of ahead of that, thank goodness.. THE MODERATOR: What is it about Texas, racing here, that makes you so successful?. CHAD KNAUS: Quite honestly, I think this is one of the coolest racetracks we go to. Super, super fast obviously. I think Tony has the track record in qualifying of over 200 miles per hour.

Last night after dinner, after being away from my beloved, ill-lit workshop for nearly two months, I was prepping my bike for todays ride. While I was away Jo Ann cleaned out the garage-a Herculean task for sure-so it was more than my long absence that had me feeling out of place in the workshop. After having my friend Chad Contreras, our mechanic on Pablove Across America, drive behind us for six weeks with a car full of fresh wheels and food and bottles, I was begrudgingly searching in the half-dark for the little bag that holds a spare inner tube, a couple CO2 cartridge and tire-the supplies needed to fix a flat. I miss Chad and everyone who worked with us on Pablove Across America. I miss Chad cracking jokes into the CB radio in my ear, and calling out each car or double semi truck that was approaching from the rear. And, of course, I miss Chad expertly replacing a punctured tire with an entirely new wheel as I stood there eating or wiping my nose. I got only five flats in over 3,400 miles, ...

By the end of 1998, Asia was free of dracunculiasis (Guinea worm disease), with Pakistan, India, and Yemen having interrupted transmission in 1993, 1996, and 1997, respectively. Transmission of the disease was also interrupted in Cameroon and Senegal during 1997. Chad reported only 3 cases during 1998. Dracunculiasis is now confined to only 13 countries in Africa. The overall number of cases has been reduced by more than 97% from the 3.2 million cases estimated to have occurred in 1986 to 78,557 cases reported in 1998. Because the civil war in Sudan remains the major impediment to eradication of dracunculiasis, the interim goal is to stop all transmission outside that country by the end of 2000. The most important operational need now is for national programs to improve the frequency and quality of supervision of village-based health workers in order to enhance the sensitivity of surveillance and effectiveness of case containment.

During the first introduction of a group A meningococcal vaccine (PsA-TT) in 2010-2011 and its rollout from 2011 to 2013, >150 million eligible people, representing 12 hyperendemic meningitis countries, have been vaccinated.,The new vaccine effectiveness evaluation framework was established by the World Health Organization and partners. Meningitis case-based surveillance was strengthened in PsA-TT first-introducer countries, and several evaluation studies were conducted to estimate the vaccination coverage and to measure the impact of vaccine introduction on meningococcal carriage and disease incidence.,PsA-TT implementation achieved high vaccination coverage, and results from studies conducted showed significant decrease of disease incidence as well as significant reduction of oropharyngeal carriage of group A meningococci in vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, demonstrating the vaccines ability to generate herd protection and prevent group A epidemics.,Lessons learned from this ...
Abstract Microfilariae of Onchocerca volvulus were detected in the urine of 65 residents of three coffee plantations near Yepocapa, Guatemala. In this area the prevalence of microfilaruria is estimated to be between 17% and 30% of the population 10 years of age and older. Almost all of the people examined had clinical manifestations of onchocerciasis and 80% of them had microfilariae in skin snips. The frequency of microfilaruria is associated with the number of microfilariae in the skin. Within each age group those who had lived longer on the coffee plantations were more likely to have microfilariae in a skin snip and more likely to have microfilariae in their urine. The presence of subcutaneous nodules or history of prior nodulectomy did not reduce the incidence of microfilaruria nor did the presence of subcutaneous nodules increase the incidence of microfilariae in the urine.

For a short while in the summer of 2002, a new 2002 standard was instituted in several cities, including Beijing. They enabled number/alphabetical customisation. (The possible combinations were NNN-NNN, NNN-LLL and LLL-NNN, where N would be a number and L a letter. However, although the usage of "CHN", to designate China, was not permitted in the plates, that restriction, oddly enough, did not apply to the letters "PRC".) The VIN was also added to the new plates, and the plates were white, with a gradual blue tint at the bottom end of the plates. Black letters were used on the plate. In late August 2002 new 2002 standard plates had their issuance temporarily interrupted, officially for technical reasons, but actually because some number/alphabetical combinations of a controversial nature in Mainland China were utilised. One of the biggest controversies was when a vehicle with plate number USA-911 was spotted in Beijing, causing an uproar as it was taken to be a reference to the September 11 ...

As part of the Inter-Congolese dialogue, Brigadier General Malik Kijege of the MLC was named head of military logistics, while Major General Dieudonné Amuli Bahigwa was named head of the navy. Two of the DRC's ten military districts were also given to the MLC, and Bemba was allowed to appoint and dismiss the foreign minister of the DRC. Bemba, as the MLC candidate, came second in the 2006 presidential election, and the party gained 64 out of 500 seats in the parliament - the second highest number for any political party. In the 19 January 2007 Senate elections, the party won 14 out of 108 seats. Fighting broke out in Kinshasa in March 2007 between the army and Bemba's guards, who were supposed to have been integrated into the army but had not been due to what were said to be concerns about Bemba's security. The army prevailed in the fighting, and Bemba took refuge in the South African embassy.[7] On April 8, the MLC released a statement in which it said that its headquarters had been occupied ...
